What's that pink jug there? Coolant?
Yes sir! Batteries are liquid cooled, motors are oil cooled. Coolant recommended maintenance is to be changed at 10years or 120,000 mile - whichever comes first 😂

@Treadup no these blinkers are on a advanced air cooled system

I'm guessing that switch is for safety crews, not for him. I would assume there is another switch inside the car.
my friend Europes TCR supplier Frank Hess LMS Engineering lost his TCR due too the suppression not working, his driver looked clueless I believe the harness melted

How do you like the car and the whole electric thing now that you've had it for a bit?

Interesting. Are you supposed to top up anything along the way? I would not expect the coolant can be lost anywhere that wouldn't be a really big problem.

The manual for the wife's Tesla says battery coolant should last the lifetime of the car but also any damage caused by opening the reservoir is excluded from warranty. Not that I know how to access it or want to.

Nice !! Can't wait to hear what you think of it.
I love it. It sounds absolutely fantastic (other than the drone between 3500-4k lmfao). It sounds like a V6 somehow. It's paired to a CTS Turbo Catted downpipe. 10/10

Tbh it's quieter than I expected. But that's definitely not necessarily a bad thing lol. Between 2k-3k if I don't hammer it it sounds stock. And other than cold starts the idle sounds almost the same way as only with a downpipe. Still super happy with it though lol. Still 10/10
